Demo permits have been filed for 14 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village, the site of a planned 19-story residential tower designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects and Hill West. Located between East 8th Street and East 9th Street with 52 feet of frontage along Fifth Avenue, the property is currently occupied by a four-story residential building with 20 units. Madison Realty Capital is listed as the owner behind the application, after purchasing the 5,255-square-foot site for $27.5 million in 2015.
Construction is topped out on 50 Trinity Place, a 28-story Aloft Hotel in the Financial District. Designed by Peter Poon Architects and developed by FIT Investment Corporation, which purchased the property for $15 million in 2012, the 77,310-square-foot tower will yield 173 hotel rooms at the corner of Trinity Place and Rector Street, diagonally across from Trinity Church.
Work is progressing behind scaffolding on 173-175 Chrsytie Street, a topped-out ten-story residential building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Designed by ODA Architects and developed by Nexus Building Development Group, Inc., the 25,500-square-foot-structure will yield 13 units ranging from two- to three-bedroom layouts, as well as 1,537 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The structure stands opposite Sara D. Roosevelt Park and immediately to the north of two other current residential buildings from the same design and development team, 167 Chrystie Street and 165 Chrystie Street.
Earlier this week, Meltzer/Mandl Architects revealed the first renderings of a new six-story multifamily building at 15 Greenwich Street in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village Historic District. Drawings and illustrations of the proposed development were revealed in a public hearing with the Landmarks Preservation Commission, which must issue a Certificate of Appropriateness before construction can break ground.
Foundation work is progressing on 555 Greenwich Street, a 16-story office building in Hudson Square. Formerly addressed as 561 Greenwich Street, the structure will yield 270,000 square feet and will connect on nearly every floor with the adjacent 345 Hudson Street. The project is designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by the joint venture Hudson Square Properties, which includes Trinity Church Wall Street, Norges Bank Investment Management, and Hines, and is planned to debut as one of the city’s most sustainable buildings.
